Use RtmpSrv. It is bundled with rtmpdmp v.21 onwards: As of 2.1 there are two additional server programs, rtmpsrv and rtmpsuck. rtmpsrv is a stub for a server; it logs the connect and play parameters from a regular client that connects to it. It then invokes rtmpdump with those parameters to retrieve the stream. Usage rtmpdump -r ...

Nope - See sites like this all the time, all pirate. Avoid at all cost. ... As a reseller, I can tell you that cost price for physical media is much higher. Microsoft, Autodesk and other large companies do not authorise anyone to resell digital only copies (usually) and the only place to get a discount for doing it is by going direct - but even still, I ...

It depends on a few factors. Do you have a stable internet connection? If you have a stable internet connection, you do not need to check the integrety of the file as it will most likely be correct. I never check the hash and I also never have had corrupt files. Or maybe one time when the remote server disconnected. Do you want to verify the file based on ...

The answer and choice one makes is going to be based on his/her risk tolerance and considerations of time and effort in verification. Checking MD5/SHA1 hashes is a good first step and you should do it when you have time. However, you must consider your ability to trust the hash provided. For example, if the the author's website with the hash is hacked, then ...

Use thttpd. thttpd -d /home/bob/sharedfolder -p 8080 The directory /home/bob/sharedfolder would become accessible at http://address:8080. lighttpd can be used in a similar way, although it needs a tiny config file. For example: server.document-root = "/home/bob/sharedfolder" server.port = 8080 dir-listing.activate = "enable" which is then ...

There are a few ways that a website might interfere with a download-manager: The URL to the file is not actually to the file, it is to a page which automatically redirects to the file (this is what you saw). Depending on how the server is configured, and how the download-manager works, the redirect page may not be providing the right information (e.g., ...

The Downloads Overwrite Existing Files extension will overwrite the file if you already have one with the same filename. Doesn't check if they're the same file contents.

Free Download Manager is an open source download manager with a powerful scheduler that will let you do exactly what you need. You can create tasks to start all downloads at midnight every night and a 2nd task to stop them all at 5 am. The forum also contains links to the newest beta builds from the developers. They've been, in my experience, very stable. ...

For security reasons, YES. Consider that a Tor exit node was found to be patching binaries during download, then remember that your ISP may or may not have the slightest morals, and that they are in complete control of your internet connection.

You cannot set the dialog box to appear but for a certain radio button to be checked. You can only change the default option. You can do this within Options > Applications and then searching by the file type. See below:

Just to add to the other answers: TLDR: For files where integrity is critical, yes Long answer: I often find it necessary when I am doing something where it is critical that the file has a high integrity. One example is flashing a router with OpenWRT. If the file is corrupt, then that router would be bricked, and then I would either have to either: ...

Short answer: NO. However, sites often provide a checksum such as SHA1 or MD5 to help you verify a successful download. You can create the checksum and then Google it. For example, I have a file: VMware-workstation-full-7.1.0-261024.exe which has SHA1 checksum: 5512cb520fc91b8c4ee9b0d6f80d1cfecb0fe50f When I Google the checksum I get the VMware ...

I usually use the "download to local directory" option in the standard installer, and select the packages I want in a base installation. That downloads the packages I want but doesn't install, and I can copy that package directory to a network share or thumbdrive. Add a copy of the Cygwin setup.exe to that local directory, and you've got yourself an ...

I have a modified apt-cyg that runs the installer from the local archive. It really should be submitted as a patch, but never had the time to clean it up, so here goes.

I think any decent download manager has this feature... Googling it, the second result I found is free download manager, free and open source, and the feature list mentions "powerful scheduler", so I guess that would do.

Short answer - YES a virus can be contained within another file type. Files like JPG, MP3 etc all have to be opened and "read" by an executable. By "mal-forming" or injecting special code or data into these files, it can cause programs to fault or to execute code contained within the files - which can in turn cause other problems and give a gateway for a ...

In a way, PDF documents are executable, due to the ability to embed JavaScript into the document. Microsoft Office documents are similar – they allow VBScript macros, which has allowed many "macro viruses" in the past. In theory, such JavaScript or similar code should be "sandboxed", but in practice people find ways to escape it, sometimes by calling ...

You can install wget on OS X through Homebrew or MacPorts.* Then, it's as simple as: wget -nd -A jpg,gif -r http://example.com The -nd option does not create a directory for each path segment. -A sets the file types allowed. -r crawls recursively. You can add -l 2 (or similar) to restrict it to two levels of recursion. * If this is too complicated ...
